I agree with the previous message there is too much running in PE they also run in the rain my daughter got sick. The teachers do not update their class room schedules and assignments etc. Updating could help the parents stay on top and even prepare the student for the upcoming week. They should also have parent conferences 2 times as year and not just for the kids that are struggling. The A B students still have room to improve! I do like the principal bit her to did not return my email regarding the teachers updating their classroom assignments. I love their progress reports they are very helpful in letting us know where there grade is before we get to the report card. It gives the students and parents time to work on subjects they need help on. Overall good school.

I do not like the way the PE department makes the kids work out and run all the time. Kids go to school to learn so they can graduate and be able to get a high paying career someday. It seems PE is pushed upon the kids. The teachers have too many students to teach each one. The school is overcrowded with students.

I went to this school for 2 years. All of the teachers are nice, and they do their job very good. Some of the surrounding schools have poor funding, and are a pice of crap. This school is deff. a good choice to enroll your child in.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
